Pear and Hazelnut Cake

21 comments

I bought these firm and very crunchy blush pears from Fairprice last week and it just occurred to me that I've bookmarked a recipe using pears from Coles.com sometime ago. The recipe is Pear and Walnut cake with ginger syrup but I used hazelnut meal instead as the recipe stated that either hazelnut or almond could be used. I've also omitted the ginger syrup as the kids wouldn't like the gingery taste. The cake was very fragrant while baking and you could smell the sweetness flavour of the pears and hazelnut. The texture wasn't very dry and the pears still stayed crunchy even after baked. Definitely an easy keeper recipe. Next time, I'll  bake a smaller cake with ginger syrup for myself. I'm sure it will taste very yummy too.





Pear and Hazelnut Cake

    Ingredients:
      185g Butter, at room temperature
      1 tsp Vanilla
      110g Brown sugar
      3 Eggs (70g each), lightly beaten
      65g Hazelnut meal (ground), you can use ground walnut or almond
      250g Self raising flour
      1/2 cup Milk
      3-4 Pears (ripe and firm), cut in wedges




      Method:
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 22cm (9inch) springform pan. Line the base with baking paper.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat butter, vanilla and sugar in a bowl until light and creamy. Add eggs, bit by bit until mixture incorporated.
  • Use a spatula to fold in hazelnut meal. Fold in half the flour, then the milk, then remaining flour until combined. Transfer to the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Arrange the pear on top, pressing down slightly into the batter.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or skewer insert into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove cake on wire rack to cool.

  12. Oh Ann, what a beautiful cake! I'm so glad you remembered you had this recipe to share with us. Marion has been on such a pear kick the last week or so. Pears aren't actually in season around here but I may be able to convince her to just hold on until I find the perfect pears to create this cake. It's just Pearfect!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Ann...

  17. Very pretty cake! I love this! Oregon where I live is famous for hazelnuts. There a few hazelnut orchards not far from my house. I think I need to use local produce in my dishes more often. I could start with this.

    1. Angelic, 谢谢!这个蛋糕我收在冰箱3天都没问题。要吃之前把蛋糕放在温室十分钟就可以吃了。主要梨子要用结实和爽口的。软绵绵的就不耐放。
